Go Move Be

by Esther Polak and Ivar van Bekkum (Duration – 9:50)

A city under construction, buildings reduced to a fragile aluminum frame and made flexible,trees folded from paper and cars made of clay. The film Go Move Be (Gaan om te Zijn) intersectsbetween a digitally constructed simulation and a cardboard reality. Cameras in that world, theeyes through which we as spectators see, imitate the mechanical movements of CCTV, theflowing movements of drone cameras and the uncontrolled movements of a computerized eyerestlessly looking for the protagonist. Voices utter impressions about those movements, aboutdistance, memories, a future. Their mutual intonation suggests a shared interest, but thereseems to lack conscious exchange. The words hint at a structure that almost becomes solid.
